Crochet Nylon Thread - Fiesta Mix Size 18
Crochet Nylon Thread - Fiesta Mix Size 18.
Nylon Thread has a luster and twist unlike any other product. It produces fantastic stitch definition as well as a hand with full but flexible body. Nylons key attributes are shine, durability and receptiveness to dyes; the colours are vivid. Perfect for purses, totes, place mats, home decor items, cell phone holders, flowers, jewelry and more. The 180 meters of dyelotted thread is made from 100% nylon and is machine washable, but must be dried flat.
Securing Ends: Dabbing Fray Stop on the ends is necessary when using nylon thread which ravels easily. When coming to an end or changing colours work over the thread just like yarn but leave a little more thread. Then clip close to the stitches and immediately dab Fray Stop on the end and the surrounding area on the inside of your work. It can darken the thread so dab lightly but make sure it’s saturated. You can also dab it on BEFORE you cut it, let it dry, then cut. This could allow more control over the spreading. Fray Stop is a nylon plastic in an alcohol base and holds up very well even during washing.
Projects: There are so many items that can be made with this thread that I wouldn’t be able to list them all. It’s great for totes/bags/purses, hats, cell phone cases, ipod and pda cases, belts, watchbands, baskets, jewellery, bath accessories, bookmarks, bridal accessories, candle holders, doilies, dolls, fans, gift bags, home decor, napkin rings, placemats, hot pads, pet leash, runners and scarves, sachets, vases, wreaths, plant hangers, aprons, coasters, curtains, bells, tissue covers, curtain tiebacks, doilies, beading, making rosaries, macrame, scrapbooking, and Japanese art.
